NFOIC Announces Major FOIA Win for National Security Counselors

National Security Counselors scored a victory for openness last week when U.S. District Court Judge Beryl A. Howell ruled that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) cannot use an over-broad interpretation of the CIA Act of 1949 to avoid disclosures under the federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The case, which may still be appealed, is supported by the Knight FOI Fund, a legal war chest administered by the National Freedom of Information Coalition (NFOIC) to support litigants in meritorious open-government cases.
